"Not really audio drama in the strict sense of the definition, this 1970's series out of WHA Radio in Wisconsin featured weekly readings of science fiction stories by some of the genre's best writers. Nevertheless, since many of the readings were enhanced by music, periodic sound cues, and the occasional character voice, I consider them 'semi-dramatized', and therefore meriting inclusion on the site. Besides, the music was so well written, and the performance of Michael Hansen, the reader,...

Senior Irish poet considers the mortality of human writing.. There’s a view that we survive vicariously in the books we write and that therefore death is not ultimately lethal. This was a pagan argument and it’s still going strong in post-modernity because its consolation is both timely and timeless. Poet and linguist Peter Sirr’s ‘document drama’ for radio is a poignant study of work that’s been lost forever in the whirlpool of the underworld - and of the glittering recent...

A wealth of rare Peter Sellers recordings. Peter Sellers died, July 1980. The initial rush of glowing eulogies soon made way for often damning accounts of his character and behaviour.

But in terms of Sellers’ work, there is much to admire: from the perennial Goon Show to the Pink Panther films. But his virtually life-long showbiz career contained much more than obvious...
